I became a Chicago Public School teacher immediately after graduating from Florida State University, with a double major in English and Political Science. For my first two years teaching, I taught 1st and 2nd grade bilingual education in all core subject areas. Because my classrooms were split (1st and 2nd grade), I quickly adapted my teaching to provide personalized support for my kids, who had a range of academic and linguistic abilities. Currently, I am working as an English Language Program Teacher for two CPS schools on the west side of the city. This position allows me to work with bilingual students grades K-8, mostly in Language Arts. My interest in language oriented teaching is likely rooted in my own multi-lingual education. I attended an international bilingual school in Brazil for 6 years during my childhood, simultaneously learning Portuguese in addition to the Spanish I learned at home. I strongly believe that language is the key to exploring ourselves and our world. Through unlocking a child’s natural curiosity and expressiveness though language, I believe academics and socio-emotional achievement is possible for all kids. I also have a personal interest in literature, creative writing, and other expressive outlets. In terms of working with older students, I was a tutor at Florida State University’s Writing Center, where I assisted all kinds of students in planning, crafting and revising their writings for a myriad of purposes. I also am TEFL certified, and have accrued 100 hours of language tutoring to exchange students. In my personal life, I enjoy reading novels, trying out new restaurants, and playing music.
